We’re 10 months into rebuilding after Cat 5 Hurricane Michael slammed into our community. Temple B’nai Israel thanks all that have reached out to help in the aftermath of this devastating storm – the 3rd strongest Atlantic storm to hit North America in modern times. Your kindness, compassion, and generosity have touched us in so many ways. The congregation continues to help our families and community rebuild and quickly return to pre-disaster days!
Temple B’nai Israel, an IRS 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, is continuing to accept donations to aid in disaster recovery. Donations may be mailed to Temple B’nai Israel, Attn: Treasurer, P.O. Box 16556, Panama City, FL 32406. Donations of any amount will be genuinely appreciated and recognized.
With the start of a new fiscal year July 1, congregants will be receiving their membership renewals during the Summer. For those of you that are not currently members, membership information may be found at membership. Please help us to sustain Judaism across Northwest Florida.
Welcome from TBI President
Temple President, Robert Goetz, the Temple Board, and members invite you to learn more about our congregation. We currently conduct Lay Led Services once a month and have a Rabbi to lead us during the High Holy Days. Our services are normally the second Friday evening of the month but our schedule is published on this website. The Shabbat service is normally preceded by a communal Shabbat pot luck dinner. The entree (usually roast chicken) is provided by a congregant and attendees are encouraged to bring a side dish, dessert, or beverage to share. Pease join us for Shabbat dinner at 6:00 pm if your schedule allows, or just for the 7:00 pm service. When possible, on Saturday of Shabbat weekends at 12 pm we conduct a Lunch & Learn. Bring your lunch and join the discussion on the parshat of the week or another topic of religious importance. Later that day Havdalah is celebrated at sundown. Get full details of TBI Upcoming Events at the top of this page or visit our Calendar page. We encourage you to share these pages with friends and family.
Welcome to our Temple! – Robert Goetz, President
